on these things. a co-op is really used over three-quarters of the land area of america so we buy our electricity that way. it's a creature of the new deal. it's worked really pretty well overall of the country for 70 or 80 years. it's owned by the customers, not owned by the government. it works. it works real well. there are good ways to solve this problem. i think the key is to be open-minded, to not use alarmist rhetoric, to focus on the real problem of 47 million uninsured americans today. unaffordable health care for everybody and a runaway health care system that does not provide the quality we deserve in america. we can solve any problem we want to in this great country. let's put our minds together and calmly and rationally solve this problem. we can do it and we can do it without a big government solution. >> mr. gingrey injure response? >> my response is i agree with jim. things like association health plans equalizing the tax treatment, making sure people that get their insurance through a small employer our individual market get the same tax benefit, tax break, discounted insurance,

in america complained about their government. their government is them. the compromise in washington is that there are too many interests represented that go against each other. you have republicans, the left, the right, all of these different interests. they have made it their governments and they cannot get anything done. obama has pushed as hard as he can with reform and consumer protection. but he has got to back up off of this issue. we know for a fact that insurance will not be affordable. the efforts of the american people to be able to achieve it, you will not be able to ensure people. people will be losing their coverage during hard economic times. the main thing that it is, i believe that the public option is the peace that keeps insurance companies price gouging the american people. it is the balance on the scales. if you take away the option, believe me, the insurance companies can do what they want. i think that obama should let them get their just due. if they do not want the public option to be able to balance what big business is doing it in not offering a real servic

town hall meetings he held. he's going to hold a number of others. this is middle america coming out really upset and angry with what's going on in washington, d.c. it's got to do not only with health care but the government takeover of automobiles, of wall street, of everything. >> you know, mika, the problem for democrats, they will say republicans are doing this, too. what the republicans are doing are even worse. >> right. >> the problem is that democrats who are running washington, d.c. it's democrats who are going to be judged by how they control power. it's democrats who seem to me to be messing things up as badly as republicans did over the past four years or so on domestic issues especially. we have a speaker of the house calling companies immoral and villains and calling protesters un-american. when you have harry reid, the person running the united states senate calling people that oppose his bills evil, evil mongers. we have jerry nadler and others talking about fascism in america and tactics being fascist. this is a democratic party out of control. john boehner is not go

america here. she works for a big company. and you know what, the public option won't really help her. it won't affect her at all. it won't do anything, and the reason is probably because her employer won't be allowed to join it. so, the public option means different things for different people. >> elizabeth cohen, appreciate it. >> thanks. >>> if you have a thought, a rant, a question, on public options or anything else regarding health care, here's a few of the towns where lawmakers are actually listening today. but here's a heads up, texas congressman lee green is requiring ids at his town hall meetings, he claims 'yote an effort to disrupt previous meetings. and the health care reform don't have the street corners to themselves anymore, halfway through the make-or-break month, people are showing up and speaking up. more about that next hour. >>> and if you want to know more about health care debate and how it could affect you and your family, check out the special health care in america on cnn.com, you can get the latest on fact checks and i-reports, you can even read the bills, j

in china for corporate america? >> it's very important. the two economic engines that the world is looking to take us out of this recession in a reasonable way are china and the u.s. china has been pulling more than its own way weight for the first eight or nine months of this and we expect they'll continue. they should be able to do that more organically than through the physical stimulus they've been going through. >> do you agree with that, nick. >> yeah, i think it's been big for the material stocks, commodity based stocks, some of the industrial based stocks. why i am focused on the u.s. consumer is that the recovery there has been a little bit in balance. you basically have the stimulus, the lending that's gone on. you need some kind of civility come back for the export sector. we need to help that export sector out a little bit over there. >> what do you want to do if you believe that china is continuing this recovery? we had guests on recently talking about 9% growth in china. if that's the case, that should be pretty important for the global recovery. >> i mean, my general strateg

and the economy. unlike some others, i do not think barack obama is an evil men bent on destroying america. i just think he has lost control of the process. the rap on obama from the jump is that he had little policy experience are we not seeing that now? this health care initiative is a fiasco. and most clear-thinking americans know it it's time for the white house to regroup, rethink, and wise up. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction. joining us from los angeles, fox news analyst tammy bruise and radio talk show host leslie marshal. all right, leslie. where am i going wrong? >> well, there has to be a public option. and certainly i disagree with you, bill, that this is going to go through. three out of four plans in both the house and the senate include a public option. without a public option, there really isn't any health care reform because what the public is saying is if i'm not insured i want as access. if i can't afford what i have i want an optional plans that's more afford dible. >> i met her. i have a lot of respect for her. i would agree with you not that she is

for "the washington post," and co-author of quality battle for america: 2008," best-selling book. thanks so much for joining us. susan, first of all, to you, the battle of the left and the right, kathleen sebelius, the health and human services director went out today and said, nothing new, we weren't sending any signals, but they were! they weren't changing the actual words, but they -- >> apparently, last weekend was the weekend they decided to send a message that they were willing to give up on the public option and go with this more ephemeral ideas or less defined idea of co-o co-ops. the day before on saturday, we had barack obama himself saying at a town hall meeting that this was just a sliver of health care reform. and not something that should undo the idea of moving ahead, even if the public option -- i think the white house has determined that both because of opposition from republicans and more importantly from conservative democrats that this is not going to be in the final bill and they're trying to let these house democrats, who tend to be more liberal, to know that. >> but d
